   Didn't get to power them up yet, but I finally had a chance to take
some snapshots. You can't really tell, but that socketed 40-pin DIP on
the bridge card is a Z80.


   One of the first things I want to check, after basic function, is
whether these guys will function on one disk. Looks like they should.

   If they will, one of those Maxtors is going to go live in my PC/RT.
The RT has a 280MB IDE Seagate Medalist in it right now, which was a
cool hack, but I'd be happier with the ESDI adapter back in. And the
Maxtor is bigger. :)
